Where were you on that Awful day on September 11th, 2001 ?
Just about to walk out the door to attend my son's second birthday party. I sat for hours and just TRIED to wrap my mind around what was happening on U.S. soil. The one question the still remains unaswered is why inocent people? I can understand if it was a military base or personal. They WANTED to be in harms way, to protect the INOCENT. I feel only cowards would attack the general population to get their point made.
I was working at home during the morning of 9/11. An associate called me from the office and asked, "Do you know anyone who works in the World Trade Center? It was hit by a jet." I was in such a hurry to turn on the TV I almost forgot to hang up the phone. I watched, somewhat dazed, as the images on the screen reported what I thought was a great tragedy. Then, the second plane flew into the towers. "This is just like Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941," I thought to myself. I called my associate back at the office. "Close the office," I said to him. "I think this country is now at war!"
I was in San Francisco with my wife. We live in Florida. It was a long drive back.
I was sitting in a "Hooters" bar with a friend. We thought it was unreal. But, OTH, it was not surprising to us because of New World Order (NWO) U.S. government and corporate actions in the past, empowering and financing the Muslim wogs. And a good case can be made that the U.S. govt purposefully ignored warnings, or even enabled the wogs, so that something like that WOULD occur.
Since the U.S. corporate state is hell-bent on increasing power over all other countries and people here and abroad, they have become masters of the Hegelian dialectical methodology. Which is:
1) Create a crisis.
2) Wait for their ignorant and stupid subjects to cry "save us".
3) Implement a "solution' that lays the ground for the next crisis.
Rinse and repeat.
I was at work at the Methodist Church Preschool. All the parents of the kids came and picked up their children from school soon as news got out. I went home and thought about whether I should take my kids out of school and figured they were safer there than anywhere else and besides who would come to a little town like Lawrenceville to cause harm. The small little airport in Lawrenceville right around the corner from the Preschool "Briscoe Field" is where supposed two of the terrorist did their flight training.

If a Terrorist attack of similar magnitude to September 11th happened today, would America unite?Our nation politicizes everything; from sports, to television, to global migration, history, and now even natural disasters. The current environment of the nation is anti-police, anti-republican,...

I was living in Queens, NYC and was feeding my 1 month old baby and watching the news when I first saw footage of the fire in one of towers. So much has changed since then.

How can Americans so soon forget September 11th 2001It really makes me sad that for the most part a lot of Americans seem to have forgotten what was done to the USA on the morning of September 11th 2001. They took all the videos off TV of the planes flying into buildings because they said it would...

I want to see if we can get everyone to post a remembrance for the tenth anniversary of September 11th. If you are willing, please post a hub about where you were, how you felt, what you did, or how it affected you or a loved one. I want to cover HubPages with tributes for one day.
